Remotely Possible

When we upgraded to the new iPhone 5 a couple of months ago, I lost most of my apps in the conversion. But, instead of crying over spilt apps, I decided to find some that were better than what I lost. It didn't take me long to find the best and brightest flashlight app I've ever used.

It's called "Flashlight" (duh) and it is crazy good. The only problem you'll have with this app is that there are (at last count) more than 1,200 flashlight apps available. Since the name "flashlight" doesn't really set it apart, look for the flashlight app from "IntellectualFlame". That's the one you want.

I've nicknamed it "Digital Sun" because this App is BRIGHT.

Here's the bright idea in action.

  Other than offering illumination (but really, when you're looking for a flashlight what else really matters?), it's also mind-numbingly easy to use. Once the app is installed, all you have to do is touch the app icon and you instantly have all the light you'll ever need.  

In addition to being the best flashlight ever, it comes with a "strobe" mode with 9 different settings. I guess this would come in handy if I'm ever lost at sea or want to invite someone to a rave. So far, I've just needed the flashlight setting.

Prepare your own Mexican quick fix with this Chipotle-inspired bowl. Carbs are moderated by filling the bowl with beans, extra veggies and chicken. No need for rice, since the beans count as carbs.


If you love tomatoes, increase the quantity to 1/2 cup, but note that the carbohydrates will also increase.

If preparing this recipe for one person, cut all of the ingredients in half. Or simply prepare the full recipe up to the end of step 2 and store leftover chicken and vegetable-bean mixture in separate airtight containers in the refrigerator for up to 2 days. Reheat in the microwave on High for 1 to 2 minutes, or until heated through, and continue with step 3.

Health Bite: The iron, calcium, magnesium, manganese, copper and zinc in black beans help to keep bones strong and healthy.
